'Dirty politics' in AAP ?
Amulya Ganguli , Mar 07, 2015
For the Aam Admi Party (AAP) to begin falling apart less than a month after its famous victory in the Delhi election will be a cause of surprise and disappointment to its legions of followers in the national capital and outside. Surprise will be felt because it was believed that the party had learnt the right lessons from the suicidal tendencies which it displayed after its electoral success last year. ....
The emperor has no sense: Rahul's revival plan reveals his Tughlaq complex
Ajaz Ashraf , Mar 02, 2015
The quirky politics of Rahul Gandhi, most recently symbolised by his absence from the Budget session of Parliament, reveals a mindset remarkably similar to that of Muhammad bin Tughlaq. Like the monarch, Rahul's approach to politics and power adheres to what is prescribed in textbooks, seemingly commonsensical, yet out of sync with the extant reality. ....
Fugitive prince: Is there a rift between Sonia and Rahul?
Amulya Ganguli , Feb 28, 2015

PM Modi's secular pitch can give BJP a new face
Amulya Ganguli , Feb 21, 2015
The saffron brotherhood is apparently coming to terms with India's pluralism - and the constitution. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi's observation that his government will act against any religious group inciting violence shows he has realized, albeit belatedly, that he cannot afford to maintain his "dangerous silence", to quote the New York Times, on the intimidation of minorities by Hindu groups affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). ....

Recognizing the significance of the AAP
Uday Dandavate , Feb 09, 2015

Loss in Delhi bad for Parivar, not the BJP
Saeed Naqvi , Jan 31, 2015
In politics, sometimes normalcy looks abnormal. That the Bharatiya Janata Party should be with its back to the wall in the Delhi battle is abnormal for those who have not yet recovered from the awesomeness of Narendra Modi's victory in May 2014. ....
Janata Parivar: A group of opportunist provincials
Amulya Ganguli , Dec 27, 2014
The so-called Janata "Parivar" comprising remnants of the old Janata Dal has been severely jolted in its first trial of strength although it has not yet been formally constituted. The dismal performance of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the Congress (although the latter is only the parivar's soul mate and not a member) suggests that the nascent alliance has a long way to go before it can be taken seriously. ....
Hindutva upsurge will tar Modi's image
Amulya Ganguly , Dec 13, 2014
The first phase of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) politics was marked by the targeting of mosques and churches. After the advent of Narendra Modi, the scene has become quieter. In fact, the Ram temple issue has been put on hold and even the fulminations against "love jihad", the supposedly sinister plan of Muslim youths to marry Hindu girls, have faded away, at least for the time being. ....
